At the Peak of Zirakzigil

An illustration I did recently for a good friend who is as much fan of The Lord of the Rings as I am. It was printed and framed for his livingroom. Very fun to illustrate, mainly from the movie, but not just a redo of the scene as it was. Also mixing some of the old John Howe's designs with the movie ones for the Balrog. Testing out a zbrush, octane and photoshop pipeline.
